WHAT IS IT???????
Ok, I have a question for all of you who Gather ALL Types of Wild Edibles...
I NEED a Name of it..
Knight 50 Cal and I were out at Boyds Big Tree farm today sitting at the band shelter up there and watching the many different hawks fly around and talking about the area, the rain and flooding and other issues...
I happened to get up and walk over into the woods to see if I could see any Mushrooms pushing up in the woods where I know they have been in the past...As I stepped thru the weeds, I got a smell of something and Can NOT Figure out what it is but I KNOW Exactly what it is, just can not come up with the name of it!
Need help remembering... I Looked around on the ground for I knew what it is grows low to the ground and I started snipping leaves off the little plants and smelling them but could Not find that 1 plant...
We used to dig it in the fall and Mom used to make Tea out of it...I mentioned to Knight that I KNEW the name of it but could not remember for it has been so long and explained to him about Mom making tea out of it..
When you walk thru it where it is growing you Get a VERY STRONG Smell of Black Licorice....I KNOW There are Many on here that know what I'm talking about, I NEED a Name of it to jar my Memory on what the plant is...It doesn't grow all that tall, maybe 1 to 2 feet high and bushs out...and the Smell, ALWAYS of Black Licorice, Normally only the Roots are dug and used from it to make the tea!
